Why Choose Us?

Thank you for considering Acuity for your treatment. Choosing an orthodontist is an important decision. The following is a little information about our practice and why we believe Acuity is the best choice for your orthodontic care.

Mission Statement

At Acuity Orthodontics, we provide superior orthodontic treatment utilizing leading edge technology, while delivering world class service to our guests. Your total satisfaction is always our top priority. We judge our success not only by the beautiful smile we create together through orthodontics, but by the number of smiles we bring you throughout your time in our care.

Our 30 Minute Guarantee

We know you and/or your child’s time is valuable. We guarantee that for your routine orthodontic visits, we will have your orthodontic appointment completed in 30 minutes or less. That way we can help minimize time missed from school or work. On average, we see patients every 8 weeks; so that means only 12 visits to complete a 2 year plan!

Extended Hours

We offer appointment times until 6pm during the week, in order to minimize time missed from work or school.

Multiple Doctors

~ We utilize multiple doctors in our office to increase appointment availability and thoroughness of care.  Our doctors coordinate treatment plans and are able to treatment plan difficult cases as a team, assuring you receive the best care possible.

Advanced, Modern Treatment

~ At Acuity you will benefit from the latest advances in orthodontics. An attractive smile with straight teeth is only part of the goal. Perfecting the bite and aligning the jaw is key to a long-term healthy smile and preventing future dental problems. Our doctor hasn’t been in practice for 20, 30, or 40 years; and we want you to know that. Just as tv’s have changed, so has orthodontic treatment. From lasers, to advanced computer graphics and imaging, to digital X-rays (which use 1/10th the radiation of traditional X-rays), we utilize the most current technology available to provide the highest quality care possible.


~ Our doctors graduated at the top of their class in both dental school and orthodontic residency.  Dr. Keith brings over 10 years of clinical experience to our office, while Dr. Cara provides the latest orthodontic knowledge available.


~ We have many options available depending upon your (or your child’s) unique style; flashy colors, fun shapes, glow-in-the-dark, or completely invisible braces. In addition to tooth colored ceramic braces and Invisalign, Dr. Wickizer is one the few certified providers of Lingual braces in the state.

Friendly Team

~ We are very proud of our Acuity “family”. Our team loves what they do and it shows. We strive to provide an atmosphere that is relaxed and enjoyable. We hope to succeed in making you feel less like a patient and more like family.

Multiple State-of-the-art Locations

~ We currently have three locations in the low country, and have the plan to expand more in the future. This way, we can be close to your kid’s school, your work, or even your home. We have a centralized patient database system, so that you can come to any or all of our offices. That way we are always close by, and always convenient for YOU.

Preferred Invisalign Provider

~ Dr. Wickizer is an Invisalign Preferred Provider, which means he has treated more Invisalign cases than most practitioners in the lowcountry. He was actually trained by the INVENTOR of Invisalign himself during residency. We have proven results on cases that other practitioners will not attempt with Invisalign; so if you’ve been told you are not a candidate before, you should give us a try. And if you’re new to Invisalign, you can be confident that your results with us will be nothing short of spectacular.

Not Corporate

~ With all the corporate dental offices around, rest assured that we are privately owned.  Corporate offices have been the focus of much scrutiny from the press, often focusing on the business profit over the patient.  Our founding doctor was born and raised in Charleston.  Rest assured that his number one drive is ultimate patient care!  Listed below are the corporate offices in town:
